How to make an aromatherapy blend of essential oils

The beauty of aromatherapy is the opportunity to create a blend of essential oils that’s tailor-made to your exact requirements and preferences.


Sure, you can buy pre-mixed blends — but learning how to blend essential oils from scratch will take you to another level of aromatherapy. Once you learn the basics and start experimenting, I can guarantee you won’t look back!


The art of blending essential oils is complex and involves many different factors — from balancing fragrance notes, to learning which families of oils work well together.


If you’re a beginner and wondering how to get started with essential oils, I recommend you download my ebook The Little Book of Aromatherapy!

    How do I know the amount of drops to use in the blend from the wheel? Also how do I know which oil the safety feature is for?

    • Hi Elizabeth. The app is about blending suggestions, rather than specific recipes. So it’s about which essential oils blend well together. There is no specific number of drops to use, as this varies on several factors. I have explained this in more detail here:

      Regarding the safety features, this updates as each essential oil is added to the blend. For individual safety information on each oil, this is shown on the individual essential oil profiles (available in the Premium version of the app) Hope that helps! 🙂
